Text description provided by the architects. The project follows the current trend of transforming a duplex into a cottage, and adds an extension in the backyard.
The client’s order was clear: create a place designed for celebrations and other good times with friends. With a nod to the theatre, the house lets its residents’ lifestyle take centre stage.
The backyard is the stage, and alludes to the façade of a loggia. To see without being seen, or to see and be seen: you have the choice.
Just like the neighbouring homes, here the rear wall is composed by a volume of white colour. The heart of the façade stands out through the use of dark-coloured, but lightweight, facing, which frames large glass windows whose transparency is filtered by horizontal blinds. Black wood fills the space, both indoors and outside.
